What’s your biggest remaining challenge?

Society is so conflicted! 12,000 calories OR size 0.

Two of the top news stories today:

“After [Phelps’] latest victory, he revealed the secret behind his six-days-a-week, five-hours-a-day training regime: an extraordinary 12,000-calorie daily diet, six times the intake of a normal adult male.”

and

“Tatiana Stewart’s willowy physique — she is 6’2” and wears a size 4 — attracts fashion-modeling scouts on the street. But once she appears at auditions, they tell her that if she wants to pursue a career on fashion’s runways, she must lose weight.

Do I even need to say anything? We want to read all about eating a bunch and being rail thin. Sigh.
